Stylish and Comfortable Golf and Every Day Watch With Glove-Friendly Touchscreen
Stylish Golf GPS Watch

The Garmin Approach S3 is stylish, comfortable and easy to use while on the golf course. With a high-resolution, glove-friendly touchscreen display it’s responsive even with a glove on.

Find your distances

Just a quick glance of your watch and you know exact yardages to the front middle or back of greens as well as shot distances, layup and dogleg distances.

With pre-loaded golf courses

Packed with 40,000+ International golf courses that are free to update without subscriptions or fees.

Get more golf courses

No larger than a typical sports watch, the comfortable S3 is filled with 40,000+ preloaded golf courses from around the globe – all without extra fees or subscriptions. Plus, whenever they release more courses, you can download them for free.

Includes Strokeplay Scoring
Keep score and see how far you hit it

Approach S3 debuts digital scorecard options for individual players. You can save, review and print scorecards from your home computer. Plus, when you hit a big one you can see how far it went with the Measure Shot feature.

Touch To Reposition The Pin
Touch and move the pin

Green View shows you the true shape and layout of the green. Use the touchscreen to manually move the pin to the day's location. This is especially helpful on par-3s where you'll be able to dial in the distance you need and fire away with confidence.

Never Miss Your Tee Off Time
Wear it everyday

The Approach S3 functions as an everyday watch, and it has an odometer so you can see how far you walk each day or every round you play. A round timer is also included so you can keep track of how long it took you to play 18.

All Distances Covered No Matter Where You Are On The Course
Customise the distances you need

Garmin Approach S3 gives you distances to the front, back and centre of the green and you can see distances to doglegs. Approach S3 also allows players to input and save customisable yardage points – like water hazards or bunkers – from anywhere on the course.

Store and Share Your Scorecards On Garmin Connect
See golf stats online

With Garmin Connect, Golf Approach owners can now view their scorecards and golf stats online. Users can upload, analyse and share their course data and see hole-by-hole details to understand their own trends and tendencies to improve their game. Track your progress over time including longest shots and average score and share information with friends, family (and rivals!). Approach S3 is compliant with R and A rules. Permitted when Local Rule is in effect (see R and A Decision 14-3/0.5).

I had originally gone with a Bushnell V2 scope which although worked well was clumsy to have to keep getting out and putting away every time and no good on blind shots.
I sold the V2 and have just finished my 4th round with my new S3 and I cannot rate it high enough. So easy to use and a glance to the wrist and your away.

My other half is golf mad and he absolutely loves this watch. It is easy to use , comfortable to wear and looks very impressive too.
He's not good at following instructions usually so if he can use it anyone can. He swears that his game has improved since he got it so it must be good !

The Strap is uncomfortable on the wrist; not easy to fix on the wrist either. The watch itself is functional.

excellent range finder, especially for approach shots. I am high handicapper and so this will help me to learn distance of shots with various clubs so that I may be a better golfer with lower handicap.

Overall pretty decent, the touch screen can be temperamental and the screen can accidentally scroll onto the next hole by mistake. My expectations were high so I'm a bit disappointed.

It's great as it logs in to garmin connect with my other gadgets. It's not too big on the wrist and you don't notice you have it on. It's improved my golf as it really is accurate from anywhere on the course and sadly I find myself anywhere on the course. You can get 36 holes of gold from the battery life. It is easy to use and was easy to set up. Now looking forward to my handicap coming down.

Only complains are that the watch often advanced early to show next hole and also the lock screen is hard to remove
